production plant park

FA 2015 | fallow cities studio. detroit, mi | julie bargmann. This fall research and traveling studio focused on the latent potential of the abandoned Herman Kiefer Health Complex in Detroit, MI. Starting with a week-long study trip to Berlin, Germany, the studio identified sites that demonstrated successful adaptive reuse and user-based urbanism strategies for use in Detroit. The production plant park project aims to incrementally transform the south grounds of the Herman Kiefer site into a hybrid public and working landscape. Through acts of cut and fill, planting and management, the spatial experience of the pavilion walkways is extended and space for public observation of urban orchard, farming and nursery practices is incorporated into these working landscape typologies. This offers the opportunity not only for public experience of these landscapes, but also job development and training programs related to these landscape fields to become central to the new identity of the Herman Kiefer site.

bench connection

FA 2014 | foundation i studio. charlottesville, va | teresa gali-izard + leena cho. This foundation i studio focused on the development of systemsbased strategies for engaging landscapes of extraction and designing a plants-based program at the Luckstone Quarry located outside of Charlottesville, VA. Responding to current limited strategies for quarry reclamation, the bench connection project proposes using redirected flow from the adjacent Rivanna River and Barns Branch Creek to create diverse plant communities along former quarrying benches. The wetland pool system responds to available light levels, expanding in sunny areas to create the largest gradient of soil moisture conditions, and therefore the potential for greatest plant diversity. By focusing on the bench as the space for reclamation this strategy has the potential to be deployed incrementally as quarrying stops in one area and begins in another.

agricultural valley

SP 2011 | urban agriculture studio. st. louis, mo | gia daskalakis. This undergraduate studio explored the potential of terrain vague territory and the system of urban agriculture to transform the urban fabric of St. Louis, MO. The current home to intersections of transportation infrastructure, Mill Creek Valley acts as a topographic and programmatic barrier between the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north and south neighborhoods. The agricultural valley project reimagines this central east-west artery as a landscape of connection that utilizes available space to cultivate vegetable and fruit crops for local consumption. Dedicated pedestrian circulation and market space offer opportunities for community interaction and engagement with the process of food production and distribution. The Cerre Street site acts as a downtown hub within the larger system where the agricultural park expands to include a central pond reminiscent of historical Chouteauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pond.

elizabeth river flats

SP 2015 | foundation iii studio. hampton roads, va | alex wall. This foundation iii studio focused on ecological and community resilience in the Hampton Roads region on the southeast coast of Virginia at the base of the Chesapeake Bay. Military, shipping, and their associated industries have created a varied land use pattern along this ecologically and historically unique region. The elizabeth river flats projects approaches this distinctive regional condition from the perspective of an at-risk residential community facing the effects of sea level rise, poor storm water management, and water quality issues. Through a series of sectional adjustments, the project proposes a physically and programmatically layered edge condition that incorporates small-scale economic activities, neighborhood commons, and wetland habitat. The project phasing encourages an incremental shift away from single family residences at the riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge and demonstrates the potential of transitioning to a robust working edge landscape that combines ecological and economic function.

SP 2012 | design build studio. st. louis, mo | forrest fulton. This final semester undergraduate design build studio was a continuation of the previous yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts at Patrick Henry Elementary School in downtown St. Louis, MO. The studio focused on transforming the expansive asphalt parking and play lot into an exciting, diverse grounds for exploration and interaction with living systems. The team worked with students, teachers, and local partners to develop a comprehensive space that combined the educational needs of teaches, recreational desires of students, and surrounding community interests. The matrix of garden rooms consists of a formal outdoor classroom, raised vegetable garden, vegetated mound garden, active mound garden, birch tree allee, and playing field. Together these elements offer a distinct place for school and neighborhood community members to learn about, experience, and begin to shape larger landscape systems.

DRAWING explorations


piedmont landforms

FA 2014 | foundation i studio | teresa gali-izard + leena cho. This drawing exploration was a part of the foundation i studio where students were asked to translate observations into a representational language describing landform and geologic processes. Starting with a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains by way of Skyline Drive, sketches representing relative slopes at overlook points were developed into a larger drawing depicting slopes, drainage paths, and larger water bodies near Lake Anna. Iteration two explores incorporating geologic information and begins to suggest the process of landform formation within the Blue Ridge.

FA 2011 | urban design journal | sarah ruck. As a part of the DIS Urban Design Journal class, these drawings explore the diverse public spaces of cities in northern Europe. Focusing on the experience of these varying places, drawings note the design intention and the observed reality in an effort to uncover patterns of use and disuse. The set of drawings also serves as a catalogue of themes, attitudes, and approaches to urban design and issues of public space.

The garden pavilion at Sixth Street Baptist Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community garden in New Orleans, LA was proposed by a group of students as a way to gain valuable design build experience. Local alumni with a connection to the garden served as design reviewers. The eventual design and construction process focused on the reuse of building materials and the creation of a hybrid social and functional storage space in the heart of the garden.

Part of a comprehensive strategy for field management, the coopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents provide field fertilization and aeration following bison occupation of the pasture. The coop was built on an existing farm trailer bed for easy movement and houses around 100 laying hens who provide eggs for three local restaurants.
